REALTOR® Safety and Security: Agent/Client Personal Security

It’s not just law enforcement professionals and first responders.  Yes, ordinary men and women face risk every day. Real estate agents regularly interact with strangers all the time, yet too many agents are often unprepared for an attack—either by known or unknown assailants. Even when not on the job, your visible public profile as a real estate agent makes you (and your family) a target for potential assault and abduction.

With a light touch and serious knowledge, Robert will:

  • Teach you the fundamentals of personal security, both in the physical and virtual worlds.
  • Help you devise an effective ongoing personal and office security plan.
  • Offer strategies for holding a safe open house and conducting safe personal marketing.
  • Show you how to take control with self-defense strategies.
  • Help you create a “home safe” plan for your family, both at home and out in the world, regardless of scenario.

COST: Just $10 for 3 hours elective CE credit.
TIME: 9 AM to Noon, Thursday, September 29
LOCATION: Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center, Sioux City

Identity Theft Security and Awareness: Protecting The Public’s Information From Identity Theft 

Every few seconds, someone has their identity stolen. Computers are hacked, wallets are stolen, credit cards are compromised, credit is ruined…and the instigators make more in a day than most of us make in a year. The fact is, the system we function under is set up to fail—and unless consumers know their options, it’s just a matter of time before they are victimized themselves.

There is a reason data breaches involving millions of credit card and account numbers make news: they cost thousands to millions of dollars per incident, and organizations take on a huge potential financial loss when it comes to the potential of identity theft and data forfeiture. The bleeding will not stop anytime soon—and the more time you spend uninformed, the better your chances of being targeted.

During this presentation, Robert Siciliano will examine:

  • The clever ways thieves look for—and get—information.
  • Numerous strategies you can use to protect your valuable personal and business data.
  • How to use various tools to ensure the data that criminals want are impossible to get.

COST: Just $10 for 3 hours elective CE credit.
TIME: 1 PM to 4 PM, Thursday, September 29
